hey would the grill out of the ranger fit the explorer? i think that would look cool if you could switch the older grill.

Nope. The front 1/4 panels won't line up with it (turn signal area). A Gen II Ranger grill and Explorer grills (of the body style pictured above) will swap though. And unfortunately you can't change the 1/4 panels out to the Ranger either because of a crease on the Ranger panels. the explorers do not have this crease so it will look pretty strange.

Now you could technically fill it in or patch some sheet steel over it, but that's a fair amount of work for something that is ultimately just going to end up getting severe trail rash anyways.

you're not the first to ask, many a people's hopes and dreams have been dashed by the above information.
